A farewell letter from our Policy Director

Dear friends and supporters,

After more than 15 years as the Policy Director of the BCCLA, I am leaving for a new opportunity.

I am thrilled to be joining PHS Community Services Society (aka: the Portland Hotel Society) as their new CEO come September 3, 2019.

Read Micheal's farewell letter here.

PHS is legendary champion for marginalized people in harm reduction, low barrier housing, and health and social innovation. The BCCLA has partnered with PHS on many important issues, including PHS’s historic win at the Supreme Court of Canada on supervised injection facilities. I am smiling broadly thinking of all the powerful and productive partnering that we could do in the future to catalyze life-saving drug policy reform.

In my stead, I am excited to announce Policy Counsel Meghan McDermott will serve as the BCCLA’s Acting Policy Director. While there seems to be a bit of a cluster of folks heading off in exciting new directions, the BCCLA is firmly planted in its new strategic direction and wonderfully poised for onboarding new and vibrant staff.

Read Micheal's farewell letter.

I will miss all the amazing people – colleagues, board members, volunteers, supporters and allies – who are the lifeblood of the association.

But hey, I’ll only be 5 blocks away, and continuing the work we all share, only from a different angle.

I won’t be a stranger. Promise.

Sincerely,

Micheal Vonn
